POMONA, Calif. – A Pomona area transient was charged with the stabbing of three other homeless people, leaving two injured and on deceased last week.
Jose Alfredo Mancinas, 23, faces one count of premeditated murder, and two counts of premeditated attempted murder. In addition, the charges include allegations that he used a deadly and dangerous weapon, a knife, and inflicted great bodily injury. Mancinas is expected to be arraigned at the Pomona Superior Court on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.
District Attorney officials said that on March 8, 2019, Mancinas stabbed a man in the face at a bus stop near East Holt and North Towne Avenues. The victim was injured, but was able to escape any further injury. The next day, on March 9, 2019, Mancinas allegedly attacked a man and woman in the 1200 block of East Mission Avenue near a homeless shelter where they all were staying. Mancinas allegedly stabbed Stacy Lynn Castillo, 49, multiple times, killing her.
The male victim suffered a stab wound to the throat but ran away and was treated for his injuries. Responding officers saw Mancinas walking away and placed him under arrest. He now faces up to 64 years in prison if convicted as charged prosecutors said. He is being held in lieu of $4.12 million bail.
